way to modern architecture. alexander has areas dedicated to more than ten different cultures and we. paid all respects to zeus and we found ourselves in ancient egypt. it may be a little smaller than the pyramids of giza but it's based on but it's certainly boasting some fine acoustics. so. listening he can't have been too impressed with all singing as it probably began to rain. it was a perfect moment mujahid indoors and visit the punks medieval town and there's a bird's eye view of the grounds. here we are james this is our territory with him is to build a space where architecture and nature into the harmony where we all want to be.

but if your fortune has something to do with the docs a probably a pretty good place to start and if you go there early enough they'll be plenty of fishermen setting off for the morning catch. one of the best things to me about. so that's why we're. going to take the place we can collect sit down there. sam. will work from the stir. so his crew will muscle and. they've been breeding the tasty mollusks for three years but they're already proving very popular. i can tell you that as far as the function is concerned this is a budding market. traditionally people here ate shish kabob sunfish and now there's a great demand for seafood not only locally but also in moscow st petersburg and
5:35 pm
elsewhere there were no shellfish an oyster is in the menu bar the restaurants only local people like to cook shellfish for a very long time. there is an oyster and once they've arrived at the beds his job begins. so we're in the right place. but once everything secure the catch has to be loaded into the rowboat and that's where the big. if you know the fun of dirty job this probably isn't for you each will pretty much guarantees you a seawall to show on the fingers and plenty of unwelcome guests. little crowds in there as well as going to stop. them soon
5:36 pm
can be surprisingly hard to find. so this kind of reading program apparent doesn't yield too many oysters they're quite rare so you see we've got tons and tons of mussels but only. hidden among them. when even the needle in the haystack. game is cruel. this still huge to my muscles locally. and there's definitely no shortage of them. so this is going to be one of the big easy of the light be the see we've got a lot under twenty. muscles appearing bathing crabs and fish and of course. it's good to eat seafood when it's this fresh unfortunately. there's no shortage of experience because. for. so. many over the first three months excessive that's where i would have nature's great effort. you don't get that much fresher than this. not to mention extremely
5:37 pm

so far a much more have the chance to meet a few of the black seas marine animals but i've heard that up there in the hills there were plenty more drawing lines the least most of the time. this isn't just an ordinary it's a rescue and a retirement center for injured addicts performing on the walls. enjoying her early morning ball. full report looks after more than sixty different species and i met up with head keeper. until he started working here three years ago because i was a hunter but it seems like the animals don't generally crunches. let's go buddy this is the himalayan band both don't you want to say how long you want to have fun and once he's only ten months old growing like a weed he's a fairly sap now but when he gets big. he's going to be about

before. he's going to be the world's biggest cat and a bit of a killer and i'm hoping he's going to be gentle with me. here have been rescued from poachers or from circuses but some come from rather more unusual backgrounds. this is grigori he lived with her grandmother in know what. he was living in a simple flat for a long time is more than ten years old grandmother has brought him here some three years ago she was a very old woman she brought to bear here in a car without any cage just using a leash she cooked a big delicious cake for him that grandmother is just too old to look after him. i'm just going to bed living in a grammy flat now. spare room. i never seem to have such a bond of trust with so many different creatures it was like being around
5:49 pm
a real life dr doolittle and hopes that the fountains of visitors who come to the park take a new appreciation of the animals away with them. having survived my visit to the safari park with minor cuts and bruises i figured it was time to visit one of the black seas more sedate tourist attractions then maybe get myself something to eat. one thing you learn quite quickly about the russians is that they love their bread whether it's brown blanc roy it pretty much comes with everything but we just call it strange that in the two years i've been travelling around this country i've never seen one of those. it's a ripple of a mill that was grinding flour in this area more than a century ago and with the help of a few modern improvements it's back in business. the history of this company is fairly typical of russia founded in eight hundred ninety five it was nationalized in one thousand eight team. in the one nine hundred thirty s.
5:50 pm
it was renamed sickle and. and wasn't service until the early one nine hundred sixty s. . a few years ago the original mill was stripped transported and rebuilt here and the old gears were given a new lease of life. there are also new parts to this windmill but it really is a timeless bit of engineering. just by the wind power and that energy. is then converted down here by these wheels. and this one is part of the original nineteenth century mechanism for women still running today. which means these two parts of the grinding stereo. we get flour the same way it's been produced for hundreds of years. and making it is a really simple process the so. they get. and
5:51 pm
now follow me. here is a receiving monk or. this week here that's now the process is already underway plenty of needing in baking. time for a snack. ok so i've heard of a ploughman's lunch but i'm guessing this is a miller's milk. bread and they were there are. this mill may be an example of the region's recent history but they're all relics along the shoreline that date back to antiquity. this is the ancient city of gold the pier was home to thousands of people until it was destroyed in the third century a.d. and it's one of the best preserved examples. of the city on the russian coast.
5:52 pm
the greeks who settled here named their city after a samarian king and its ruins cover around forty. it's still possible to wander through the so is of great houses and you can even discover the citizens favorite tipple. i bet that this would have been one of the most popular places back in the days of the cuz it's the remains of an ancient winery people would have crushed the grapes here the juice then would have come down these forests and into these enormous buckets. show you. down here. unfortunately. always go now of course it is rainwater but back in the day this would have held the equivalent of thousand bottles. you may have been long since deserted but the descendants of its greek settlers are still in the area and they still have a passion for the grape. this is russia's wine country around sixty percent of the
5:53 pm
crop comes from around this area and about to meet the people who make some of the best. these. grapes yes and this is a very important sign of the. fish. and his family are almost ready to start making the latest batch of their famous and. so much depending on the use of stretch they will set you back around fifty dollars but the grapes went destined for the. my father. oh yes the beginning. is bringing in the harvest he likes to have a few friends. of the old greek tradition. where it's.
5:54 pm
there was a pretty big power of grapes to crush so it seemed to take the. music is supposed to get everyone stomping away in a nice uniform rhythm but lumia greek slipping around on fifty kilos of grapes takes some doing. and i was about to get my reward from them being a foot. so i think. we definitely deserve a drink thank you very much. continue the evening but i want to take a stroll across a number of the regions before i called my plane back to moscow. when it's this windy even plenty of wine won't keep you warm. and his
5:55 pm
son max can run a t.v. tours along the dunes here. and also tackling the dunes it certainly beats walking back to the hotel. it may have been getting chilly but as a born and bred seaside town boy i was sad to be leaving the black sea coast it may not boast the infrastructure of some of the famous mediterranean resorts but with months of sunshine and relatively low prices and no troublesome visa receivers is easy to see why millions of russians come here for the summer holidays it's a place to relax bring the family and enjoy the warm especially water that russia has to offer.
5:56 pm
5:57 pm

investment to earn money your is a more reliable and turkish money because people don't want to save their money in the euro. but few invest in euros. get more than leave the euro is also stronger than dollars having said that i don't want to risk investing. but academics analyzing public opinion have found a common logic in decisions about the euro people polled don't care about wider economics but about their own personal finances so my pocketbook or economy is actually beyond the important factors that make me euro skeptic or euro file public opinion analysts keen to point out that further economic integration into europe doesn't just mean money and that people shouldn't only think about their pocketbook economics they have to take into account the freedom of movement of labor the freedom of service you know service these are all integrated any other so it's not
